Solving rare and hard to diagnose diseases

Mendelian.co is a digital health company based in London building technologies to accelerate the diagnosis of patients with rare and hard to diagnose diseases. Our team of clinicians, data scientists and software engineers are tackling the most complicated diagnoses on a national and global scale. Rare diseases (all 7,000 known types combined) affect over 350m people and take on average 7 years to diagnose in clinics.

Mendelian software is used by the NHS and hundreds of thousands of patients are now benefiting from our technology, which has attracted acclaim from top researchers and clinical doctors in the field.

? Who we are ?

Mendelian is a round table of physicians and data scientists. We hold weekly sprints to prioritise work at a company level. Technical staff meet practising doctors and medical staff get down and dirty with the code. We go on annual retreats and are flexible around working hours.

We make working in health feel modern. We work flexible hours, boast membership to a great co-working space, and, on Thursdays, take turns making a surprisingly high quality (virtual) lunch. Do you have any culinary delights you want to share?

We offer an intellectually stimulating environment, work within an interdisciplinary team and have an inclusive culture. We are a high-calibre, mission-driven team building a technology that improves our world.

?Mission ?

Our mission is to help doctors diagnose rare disease patients faster.

Faster diagnosis is key to the future of the NHS and healthcare abroad, from improving the lives of chronically sick people to reducing inefficiencies in overburdened hospitals. We are deploying early detection systems for rare diseases, some of the most difficult and protracted diagnoses for doctors to make.

We believe that delayed diagnosis is an information challenge and that technological innovation is central to achieving our mission. Founded by engineers and doctors, we’ve held our technology and clinical mind to high standards from the beginning.

?Role Overview ?

We are looking for an excellent all round operator, with previous brand or marketing experience.

We’ve successfully deployed our solution into clinics, scanning and reviewing hundreds of thousands of electronic medical records for symptoms of rare disease. Over the next year we need to scale up our systems and processes in order to process millions more. We’re hiring a highly motivated and organised person as a key role in the Company to help us do just that.

This role at Mendelian will give you exposure to a range of different verticals, where you will deep dive into the fundamentals of each business area you work on. This gives you breadth and depth of experience unrivalled in almost any other job and offers you significant opportunities for personal development and the chance to have a huge impact on Mendelian’s success.
